Music industry legend Matt Pinfield lets Josh pick over his encyclopedic brain in this epic discussion of the slightly obscure but sorely underrated 1972 Mott the Hoople release All the Young Dudes. Saying Matt Pinfield knows a lot about music may be the greatest understatement of the century. The former MTV VJ and alternative radio industry titan is not just a walking, talking encyclopedia of music fact and lore, his tastes have launched a thousand bands’ careers over the years. It all started with him parked in front of a record player, listening to a stack of albums as a child, fueling a burning passion to seek out new tunes. And looking back at an unpredictable career and a life filled with as much joy as heartbreak, it’s clear there is no one better equipped to pick apart the oft-overlooked and genius-inspired glam rock artistry of All the Young Dudes, the 1972 album from Mott the Hoople, who came too damn close to never releasing some of their best work ever.
